Fenway Farms Rooftop Garden Opens on Top of Boston's Fenway Park

A rooftop garden has come to one of the most iconic structures in all of Boston.

BostInno is reporting that Fenway Park (home of the Boston Red Sox) now has a rooftop garden, with the nursery being used for "home-grown concessions" along with educating young people on environmental preservation and eating healthy. The article says that the garden will include such items as arugula, basil, broccoli, carrots, eggplant, lettuce, mint, rosemary, sweet peppers, thyme, and more, depending on the season.

This is not the first time that a garden has been set up at Fenway, according to BostInno, as back in 2008, tomatoes were grown behind the bullpen's pitchers mound.

The Chowdaheadz blog says that Fenway Farms is located behind the Green Monster.
